Britain’s Got Talent 2009: The Susan Boyle Phenomena

Working on my Odesk task had made me aware of the world out there. I got so curious of the name Susan Boyle which kept appearing on the most search and viewed word on the Internet. At first I stir away from the whole hoopla, thinking that Britain’s Got Talent is just one reality show with the same set of talents and stories. It was only after sometime that I decided to check the YouTube video with the million views.

And I was indeed amazed!

I’ve seen the audiences’ reaction and skepticism the moment she stepped on stage, but it all disappeared into thin air that instance she belted out her first note. She shocked everyone when she sang “I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserables. She received a standing ovation from the audience that lasted through almost the entire performance and yes-votes from Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and “the biggest yes I have ever given anybody" from Piers Morgan.

She is absolutely amazing! It was exceptional! How wonderful to hear her voice. I too felt touch not just because of the sound of her voice but by the way she made the song live. Her voice touches the soul. There was indeed warmth and passion.

Just by standing there and singing, she proved to the world that looks doesn’t matter. It is inside beauty that matters the most. From this ordinary woman comes an extraordinary lesson of not judging people from looks alone. It was an eye-opener for everyone. She has touched our hearts with her voice and her character… and this had exceptionally made her beautiful. She had broken through the shallowness of people and the coldness of the judges. She has her own magic. She is a triumph for all self-doubters.

The Susan Boyle phenomena is truly inspiring and the biggest YouTube sensation ever! Will she reach her dream of being a renowned singer and be as famous as Elaine Page? In her own way she have achieved that… she had a more profound impact that outshines most musical performers could ever hope to achieve.

I loved the video...it absolutely moved me to tears. It just proves again the age old adage of never judge a book my it's cover. When youlook at the lyrics to the song too, you wonder whether she feels that way about her own life.
